Boko Haram Militants Kill At Least 92 Chadian Soldiers

BOMA – Nigerian militant activists from Boko Haram killed at least 92 Chadian soldiers in an attack on a military base on the border with Chad.
The deadly attack took place in Boma, in western Lake Province, early Monday, and lasted about seven hours.
“We have lost 92 of our soldiers, non-commissioned officers and officers,” Chadian President Idriss Deby Itno said on Tuesday after visiting the site of the attack.
“This is the first time that we have lost so many men,” he said.
An anonymous soldier said that Boko Haram fighters destroyed 24 military vehicles, including armored vehicles, and took away captured weapons from speedboats.
“The enemy has hit our defenses hard in this area,” said a senior officer.
Boko Haram fighters from northeastern Nigeria have intensified their attacks on the Lake Chad region in recent months.
In 2015, countries in the region formed the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) to fight militants. The MNJTF is a joint force made up of soldiers from Nigeria, Niger, Cameroon, Chad and Benin, which is responsible for ending Boko Haram activism in the Lake Chad region.
Boko Haram began its campaign in Nigeria in 2009 with the aim of overthrowing the central government.
In 2016, Boko Haram promised allegiance to Daesh.
Boko Haram’s militancy in Nigeria has killed more than 30,000 people and displaced around 2.5 million people since 2009.
